I Got a Job!

It's true! I'm a part-time baker at a local grocery store. I'm in training right now, and it's terrifying. I don't know if I'll be good at this, or be able to keep up with everything. It's been more than thirty years since I've had a job requiring standing all day, and my legs are killing me. And I have to get up pretty early. But I'm excited about it, especially about the prospect of a regular paycheck. I now have several small income streams cobbled together, and although it's not as much as I used to make, it's enough for someone who lives alone and whose kids have full scholarships.

As a consequence, posting may be a little erratic here until I get my schedule straightened out and get used to it. Please bear with me; it's just temporary.

Yay! Good for you MissCellania. I've never commented before but I just want you to know I visit your blog several times a week — it really brightens up what otherwise might be a very cloudy day.

Awesome! I'm impressed with your work ethic, and I know you will be a star. :-) Now, you get yourself some Skecher's work sneakers (I live in them!) and some support socks, and invest in a little Voltaren gel for the bad knee days. all the best!

Erraticness will be temporary.
Employment will not.
Miss C and we acolytes will go on forever.

That's great news! I hope you end up loving it. Your loyal followers will continue to follow you. If you are wearing pants/slacks Amazon has some really cute compression socks that will help with the leg situation

Your employer will have access to non-slip comfort shoes at a discount. As for the catalog. https://www.shoesforcrews.com/

I have heard that supermarket bakers do not last long because of the hours. If you are good with starting early, then you should do very well. I have a buddy that is a first shift butcher. He loves getting to work at 4:00 and being done by noon.

Congratulations - Edward

Congratulations!! You go girl!!! I have great faith in anyone who has as good a sense of humor as you do. I hope everything works out!

Miss Cellania said...

Thanks, everyone! This job will only be a couple days a week after training, so I can handle it. I already have slip-resistant shoes, and I will take your advice about socks. Thanks!

Wow, is there actual baking going on at your supermarket? If I want real baked goods, I have to make an effort and travel- all my supermarket has is stuff made off the premises. Good luck!

MrsB said...

Congrats! I recommend some compression socks, especially the Lycra knee sick length. Amazon has tons of options.
They really work.
